Heroes - Thanksgiving (11/23)

It's Thanksgiving for all the heroes.

Noah is having Thanksgiving at his house. Claire is coming and so is Sandra and her boyfriend Doug. While shopping at the grocery store he runs into his old partner (the one he almost had an affair with). They get to talking and he invites her to Thanksgiving and she in turn helps him cook the meal. At the table Claire has a meltdown. She wants to drop out of school and in front of Doug she cuts her arm and he faints. Noah talks to her and tells her she has options and shows her the compass. She of course steals it and guess who comes to dinner, it's Gretchen. Noah invited her because he knew how much she meant to Claire. They go in the car together and Claire says they're not going back to school but will be using the compass to find Samuel. Looks like they're going on a road trip.

Nathan(Sylar) and Peter are having Angela over for Thanksgiving dinner. She arrives and Peter demands answers. She sits down with them and te…

New Moon

I went to go see it Saturday night. We got there 1/2 hour before the show started and had to wait in line to get into the theater. Luckily we already had out tickets (someone ran out and bought them Thursday night). The theater was pretty full and I noticed a lot of little kids (like 10 year old girls) there. There were a bunch of previews before the movie. The movie Lovely Bones looks good. The book has been on my book list for a while.
I thought the movie was great, a lot better than Twilight. I liked how they followed the book pretty well and filled in some gaps. The werewolves were great and I loved the special effects that they did on them. The volturi were great and I loved Aro. They guy that played him (Michael Sheen) was great, he was also great in Underworld (he played Lucian, a Lycan). You could really feel the emotions, especially when Edward left and the tension between Bella and Jacob. I loved when Alice came back and the bickering between her and Jacob. I do …

Heroes - Brother's Keeper (11/16)

It was a good episode and we got some background on Samuel.

Claire is over at Noah's place doing some laundry and Tracy shows up. Her powers are out of control and she came to Noah for help. Claire helps her out, gives her a hot bath then makes her some tea. Tracy accidentally freezes Claire and rips her foot off. Tracy freaks out but Claire thaws out and tells her that she can heal herself. Her foot grows back. Her and Tracy talk and they talk about Samuel. Claire tells her she should go join the carnival since that seems to be what her body is telling her. Noah comes in while they're talking and that's about it.

Hiro is to go back in time and get a film strip that Mohinder burns. Mohinder is back in India teaching and he has a girlfriend. He still has a box of Chandra's stuff and she tells him to throw it out. He does but then digs it out and finds a film about Samuel. The film shows that Samuel is very powerful and that his powers increase exponentially wh…

Movie I liked

I watched a movie yesterday. I was home Monday and Tuesday with a sick kid, I was also sick myself. I had gotten a few movies from the library so I watched a couple and this one I really enjoyed. It's called Un Long DimanchedeFiancailles (A Very Long Engagement). Obviously it is a French movie, with English subtitles. The movie is from 2004 and it stars Audrey Tautou and it is directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet. It is the story of Mathilde (Tautou) and it is set in the early 1900s in France. She is engaged to Manech, and he goes off to war and she hears that he has died. But she believes in her heart that Manech is still alive. So she investigates what exactly happened to him in hopes of finding him and reuniting with him. It's a fairly long movie, a little over two hours. It is similar to Amelie, another movie I really enjoyed. It is the same director and you can tell by watching the movie. It even has a few of the same actors as Amelie in it. I didn't think I w…

Heroes - Shadowboxing (11/09)

Just finished watching Heroes and I have a little time so I decided to put this up early.

Matt/Sylar are traveling in an airport made Sylar pack the guns. So it take Sylar 4 hours to talk his way out of going to jail, he is a cop. Then they get a flat tire on the way to NY because they can't fly. Matt and Sylar argue about who has control. A tow truck guy stops to help and just to show Matt he has control he kills him. Stuff him in the trunk and then they go eat at the Burn Toast Diner. Sylar is saying how he almost killed a waitress there (Charlie) and how he can kill the waitress now unless Matt tells him what happened to his body. After much back and forth, Matt tells him. Then as they're leaving cops come (Matt had made him doodle on a napkin that he had a gun and was going to kill everyone). Matt realized that the only way to keep Sylar from doing more harm was to die so he makes like he's pulling a gun and cops shoot him. He's loaded into an ambulance wh…

Heroes - Once Upon a Time in Texas (11/02)

Last night's episode takes us back to season 1. The day that Hiro met Charlie at the Burnt Toast Diner and the night that Sylar attacked Claire at Homecoming.

We see Hiro standing outside the diner and seeing Charlie. He knows he has to save her from dying. He hides out in the diner and we also see Sylar come in and Noah with his partner. Hiro decides to freeze time right before Sylar is about to kill Charlie. He puts Sylar in a bus and comes back and talks to Charlie, but before he does he realizes he just changed things and he never went back 6 months to meet her so he talks to himself and says he needs to go back. Samuel is also there messing with Hiro and telling him he can't change things. So he sets it all right and geos to talk to Charlie and she is weird because her aneurysm ruptured. So Hiro talks to Sylar and convinces him to save Charlie and he will tell him his future. Sylar saves Charlie and Hiro tells him he will acquire many abilities but he will die alo…
